Coun­ter­acts Jada King­dom’s ‘Ba­nana’

The Star (Jamaica) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Dee­jay Praj-X has coun­ter­acted Jada King­dom’s ‘Ba­nana’ with a song called ‘Plan­tain’.

He said that the song has been rack­ing up im­pres­sive views on so­cial me­dia since its up­load a month ago.

“The feed­back right here in Claren­don has been amaz­ing. Plan­tain is prob­a­bly one of my more pop­u­lar songs right now,” said Praj-X.

Praj-X has re­leased songs, in­clud­ing Mad Ting N Boom, Rich­ness Come a Mi Foot, Sexy and Bad and Go Fi Kar­tel.

Since en­ter­ing the Mag­num Kings and Queens of the Dance­hall com­pe­ti­tion in 2009 un­der the name ‘Neck­o­teen’, Praj-X has been busy mak­ing a name for him­self in dance­hall cir­cles. How­ever, it hasn’t been an easy task.

“The jour­ney has been dif­fi­cult, def­i­nitely not an easy one. The buy­ing of views by some artistes in the busi­ness is hav­ing a nega­tive ef­fect on many tal­ented artistes. Not just me, but other artistes out there. You get fight from artiste, pro­ducer and se­lec­tor. That’s why me do my own thing. Mi nuh fol­low man, me build my own hype,” said Praj-X, who re­leased a nine-song EP called Alien Anatomy last year.

Born Jef­frey Porter, he is orig­i­nally from Claren­don. He said that he de­vel­oped a pas­sion for mu­sic at an early age.

“I started do­ing mu­sic be­fore I even re­alised I was do­ing mu­sic. Bang­ing on desks at school and dee­jay­ing. But even­tu­ally I de­cided to take this se­ri­ous as a ca­reer,” said Praj-X, who is now based in the Cor­po­rate Area.
